Lintian Reports (Beta Testing)

I package-contains-empty-directory

This package installs an empty directory. This might be intentional but it's normally a mistake. If it is intentional, add a Lintian override.

If a package ships with or installs empty directories, you can remove them in debian/rules by calling:

$ find path/to/base/dir -type d -empty -delete

Severity: info

Check: files/empty-directories

These source packages in the archive trigger the tag.
